Gary Gilmore

Gary Gilmore served as the anchor of Taj Mahal's first few watershed slabs and early ensembles which introduced a new generation to traditional folk blues and a guitarist named Jesse Ed Davis.

A consummate pocket player given to soulful grooves, Gary also helmed seminal platters by J.J Cale, appeared with Taj at the Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus (1968), and was among the bassists on session giant and Slowhand drummer extraordinaire Jamie Oldaker's tribute to Oklahoma's rich musical heritage, aptly entitled Mad Dogs & Okies (2005).
